Do most size down from Hiro to Ron (loafer)? In Hiro I'm an 8. I recently purchased a shell tassel loafer (from goodyearshoes on eBay) on the Ron last in size 8. They fit pretty well but there is some minor heel slippage. I'm concerned that after breaking them in the slippage will get worse. Also there seems to be a bit of gapping on the side of the shoe. Here's a pic:

Do these seem a bit wide? Should I be sizing down for Ron loafers?
On another note, the tassels on the right shoe refuse to lay flat (perhaps this is why they are seconds). Here is a pic:
Is there a way to get them to flatten down?
Any guidance is appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
I size down an additional half for Ron. So 10.5US --> 9UK. I don't have any gapping, only when I walk as the loafer flexes. The tassels will probably calm down with wear or maybe some cream would relax them a bit?
